When was the last time that you read a book that you not only could not put down, but stayed up way past bedtime to finish? When was the last time that you were so tuned into a book, that you forgot to get dinner started and everyone had to eat super late? When was the last time that you were bummed when a book ended cause you needed more?
Well if it has been a while, then I have the perfect book for you. The Riddle. It was that book for me. Simply put, I could not put this book down. It was funny, the hubby went to bed, and I was up well past midnight reading this in the dark on my iPad. I just had to finish it. While the book itself was a romance (in my opinion), there was certainly a dark cloud that hung over it. I mean it is about a boy who went to prison for a murder that he did not commit, kinda hard to make that a happy story.
From the Back of Book-
“Seven years ago Kort Eriksen went to prison for killing his girlfriend Desiree. Now he’s back in Riddle and some people think he got off easy. Others, including long time friend Norma, think he was railroaded because he’s the only Native American in town. Grace Donahue is running away from her past. Trapped in Riddle until her car is repaired she develops a friendship with Kort. Suddenly accidents are happening and people are dying. Is Kort adding to his list of victim’s or has someone else taken the reins? As mysteries from the past rise to the surface, more questions will be raised. The suspect file grows as victim’s fall. Is Desiree’s killer back for more or is someone trying to avenge her death? The riddle of Riddle will be solved, but how many bodies will it take to find the answers?”
A few side words (and potential spoilers)- first, there was no hugely bloody, violent scenes. While the story is based on the murder, it is not gruesome (which some in the genre feel they need to be overly gruesome). There is a big fight scene but it was not to bad, violence wise. Second, while there is sex; it is not very detailed. It more leads you down the start of this road, then it picks back up after the fact with them in bed.
While I was able to figure out the murderer about two thirds of the way in, I was not able to see the final plot twist at the end. It completely creeped my out, to be honest. Without giving to much away, be sure to read the entire book. You don’t want to miss the last few pages. The book is only $3.99, there is no reason not to download it today.
